Today's theme is matte combined with glossy. I liked this week because it pushed me out of my comfort zone. It isn't often that I reach for my matte topcoat, so much so that I almost put a glossy topcoat over the entire thing out of habit :)
To start this look off, I put on two coats of Picture Polish Denim. This was actually my very first time trying a Picture Polish (it was a good experience). The next step was to cut blue painter's tape and tape off a section for the second color and a section for the bottom matte portion. I added my purple which was Maybelline Color Show Lust for Lilac, and then OPI Matte topcoat near the cuticle. To finish off, I did a freehand stripe with OPI Matte topcoat at the top of the purple polish.
Overall I was happy with this look. It's not as neat as I would have liked but I guess that's why I'm always reaching for the glossy topcoat, to cover the imperfections. What do you think of this look? Also just as a heads up, I will be posting a new video this afternoon of my recent nail mail :)
